GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — The Wolverines’ go-to guy for the last three seasons will take his talents to another program. Michigan’s Hunter Dickinson has entered the transfer portal with two seasons of eligibility remaining.
Dickinson emerged as one of the top centers in the Big Ten and the nation after he was named a second-team All-American after his freshman year with the Wolverines. Dickinson averaged 18.5 points per game this season, with 14 double-doubles, starting in all 34 games for the Wolverines. The 7-foot-1 center led Michigan to back-to-back appearances in the Sweet 16 in 2022, while earning multiple Big Ten honors during his time in Ann Arbor.
“Today is bittersweet. While Hunter Dickinson’s departure is unfortunate, there are so many reasons to be thankful for and celebrate,” said Michigan head coach Juwan Howard in a statement. “This young man has accomplished so much in his three seasons. Statistics aside, Hunter helped us to a Big Ten title, back-to-back Sweet 16s, as well as a memorable Elite Eight run. These are memories that will last a lifetime. What I love most is he was an Academic All-Big Ten honoree, twice. That says so much about his character and maturity. As much as I tried to instill in him, he was a guide and inspiration for me. We wish Hunter and his family all the best in the future.”
The Wolverines ended their season 18-16, with a second-round exit to Vanderbilt in the National Invitational Tournament.
